getting its due now that john kerry is about to take over? joining us now is andrea mitchell, nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent. and the host andrea mitchell reports on msnbc. thank you for being with me. >> thank you. >> to see hillary clinton talking to anybody gets news coverage. to see her going hand to hand with senator ron johnson of wisconsin is guaranteed to get a lot of attention. but what do you think was the most important take-away from this testimony today? >> that she is a fighter, that they obviously, the republicans think that she is a likely candidate, because they were trying to muddy her up. i think that both partisans on both sides, the democrats congratulating her and a wink and a nod, we hope we see more of you and this isn't the last we'll see of you, and the republicans saying all the tough things they're saying about benghazi. there are, look, legitimate criticisms about benghazi, and the state department was devastated by the report, the independent action report, the review board that ambassador pickering and admiral mullen reported back. they very expli
to their seats, including the man expected to be the next secretary of state, john kerry, from massachusetts. if they seem dressed fairly lightly, there are some regional -- there's john mccain, dianne feinstein, there's some regional heaters in that area. there are blankets provided, as we heard. andrea mitchell is there. we'll keep alternating between this camera and the white house doorway so we don't miss a thing. and andrea, you're seeing the senate leadership fill in. >> yeah. just as senator kerry is coming in and some of the other senators, let me give you an idea of the schedule. there will be a change of power at the state department, as you know, on wednesday of this week. hillary clinton is going before the senate and the house. she's going to be here today in her role both as a former first lady and as the secretary of state. she's going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. on thursday before the committee that he chairs still, senator kerry will be introduced by secretary clinton for his confirmation hearing. we're told then that the vote on senator kerry as secretary of
afghanistan is something we have to look at very closely as well. >> are you encouraged by john kerry's appointment as secretary of state? >> i think it's really interesting. it's kind of a no-brainer. many people expected him to be, he's been very close to president obama. he's traveled. he's got a war record, veteran of the vietnam war. and he's very involved in that. and it will be very interesting because he'll also know what the limits are in terms of congress and the whole american system when it comes to enacting foreign policy. >> are you encouraged, optimistic by where the arab spring may go this year or are you quite pessimistic? >> i've been optimistic from the beginning. there will always be bumps in the road. but for me, this monumental epochal history-making situation in that part of the world is positive. and democracy is what has to happen in that part of the world. we're seeing the ugly side of the fallout in mali. but that can be dealt with if the west is willing to do it. you can't pussy-foot around these people. you have to be there for the long haul, whether it's
been sent over to the senate. the nominations of john brennan for cia, chuck hagel, and john kerry and jack lew for treasury. that is a big deal in the weeks ahead. bret: it is a tradition. these nominations have been out there and but they are formally made it to the senate so they can hope that the senate will move forward in the days ahead and confirm his new cabinet. as you know, there could be some roadblocks there. questions republicans have about jack lew being nominated for treasury secretary. they are not happy about the way some of the budget negotiations have gone in the past. of course, the debt ceiling in that debate will be hanging over those hearings. john kerry coming in, nominee for secretary of state. as chris mentioned, hillary clinton will be testifying on capitol hill, both the house and senate leader on benghazi. a lot of lingering questions on now. finally coming you mentioned chuck hagel as well. a lot of questions for him and his stance towards iran and israel. he has already asked so many of those questions on the sidelines. certainly it is usual that the
to that we saw senator john kerry, likely next secretary of state. a comment on twitter the rights i think the inauguration should be a national holiday every four years, regardless of affiliation everyone should watch it. there is justice scalia of the supreme court. watching as an arlington, texas. an independent there. caller: i am here. i just wanted to call and say that i do appreciate c-span. i appreciate the statements obama made. it was very important. also, it was good to see president carter again. also good to see president bill clinton. i just want to say we're praying for you, god bless you and we do appreciate you. >> bipartisan moment with justice scalia talking to patrick leahy of vermont. you wonder what you get to eat. here is what the menu is like. the first course is steamed lobster. the second hickory-grow by sen, and wild huckleberry reduction. the third course is hudson valley apple pie with sour cream ice cream, aged cheese, and honey. the wind will be from new york state from chuck schumer the represents the united states senate. next is a call from nelson. caller:
franken. >> jennifer: you can see richard blumenthal from connecticut. john kerry of course. carl levin. >> john: a few moments ago, speaker of the house john boehner entered, the most tan man in washington, d.c. in january. john mccain. >> jennifer: john mccain talking with dianne feinstein, i'm sure about gun control. cutting a deal right there. >> john: it is rather unseasonably warm today. i'm thankful for that for the folks who are there. >> jennifer: tammy baldwin. >> john: yesterday i was shocked at how warm it was. a lot of folks were expressing confusion as to why the president was sworn in yesterday. the constitution requires, of course, the president be sworn in on january 20th. since federal buildings and courthouses are closed on sunday, the ceremony is still scheduled for today on the 21st which happens to be dr. king's holiday. the president's second term officially began at 12:00 noon eastern time yesterday. >> led by kevin mccarthy. >> jennifer: john dingell. god bless him. longest serving member of congress. over 50 years. his father served in congress, too. he has it
&a with members of the senate, members of the house. now she moves on. john kerry's getting ready to start his own confirmation hearings. >> though, wolf, there was a big 2016 subtext to all of this. if secretary clinton ultimately runs for president, this is not the last we have heard of this, not the last we've heard of that bite, that we ran at the beginning of the piece. and of course, two members of the senate who might run for president as well were asking her questions. rand paul, very aggressive, and pla marco rubio, who was a little bit more subdued. >> less aggressive, marco rubio, than rand paul. so what you're saying is, potentially, if she decides to run for president in 2016, and a lot of us think there's a good chance she will, what she said today on benghazi, the whole record since september 11th of last year, that could come back to, what, play a role in a campaign? >> i would be surprised, if she runs, for that quote, where she says, what difference does it make, i would be surprised if that did not end up in a campaign commercial. a lot of republicans already making hay out of i
kerry, soon to be secretary of state, he could be fascinating to see how he approaches this hearing. will he be protective of the department he is soon to inherit? will he be protective of his predecessor and look for more aggressive questioning on the house side. they want to know how far up the chain of command this went. back to you. >> brian: comprehensive report, if i was to pick a favorite sound bite, it would be your first one. i thought it was right to the point. i thought the questions were right on. >> steve: the interview of the guy did you? >> oh, yeah. just a coincidence. >> i didn't know that. way to go, brian. >> brian: you owe me four bucks. >> gretchen: all right. now your other headlines. another developing story for you this morning. we just learned that manti te'o is now admitting he lied about his fake girlfriend and her death. he tells katie couric the lie was just a brief one. >> this girl who i committed myself with died on september 12. now i get phone call on december 6 saying that she's alive and i'll be put on national tv two days later and they asked me
. i think he's put together potentially a very good team. i think kerry and hagel and brennan and in a curious way now as the presidential adviser, but his very much interest in affairs with a team that's going to focus more on the problems on the ground. that is to say basic fundamental strategic challenges that are confronting us. mrs. clinton was terrific. i like her. i respect her. she was enormously energetic. but she had more of a visionary agenda, global warming, global problems, suffering, injustice, jends jendser gender issues, rheau is rights. >> all extremely important. >> but if we don't deal with the problems confronting us right now, we'll never get to dealing with the big problems in the end. so i am hoping that this new team will really address serious problems that obama didn't finish addressing. >> the theory of the case for this new team now because the reality is that we're going through a transition into a post-superpower world. we are still a superpow er, but there comes a point where we're not. and if you study obama and look at him, he wants to avoid wa
